Seattle is a very muddy place to raise chickens and even thought my girls take dirt baths daily they are still dirtier than they ever were during the summer. Now my best layer has absolutely filthy eggs. She must be rolling them in her poo. I just read that maybe we shouldn't be eating them, even though I wash them. Opinions? How do I get her to keep her eggs clean? Her tail feathers are really dirty and I am wondering if maybe she is unhealthy from being in mud so much. I've only had chickens for about 6 months now so I am a chicken farmer newbie and am probably doing something wrong. I only have 3 girls and they have an indoor henhouse and a covered outdoor, non-muddy area, and then a fenced outside non-covered, extremely muddy area. I try to let them out most everyday but predators cause a constant threat.
